This card was made using the new Meadow Bush Layering stencils set. And watercolours!
Tips for success:
1) don't have too much water in your brush, or the paint will seep too far under the stencil. A little bit is ok, and it will give you a soft, hand painted look.
2) move quickly from one layer to the next for a soft look while the previous layer is still damp. Let each layer dry completely for a crisper look.
3) double up on the layers (photos 3 and 4) - you can get a more detailed look by painting one colour through the entire hole, and then taking a deeper or different shade and adding it through the same stencil, but with smaller areas
4) adding splatter will distract from any 'flaws'. This process gives lovely soft results, but when I looked too closely, I could see areas I didn't love. I added grey and gold splatter to give the eye more to look at!
